Due to the COVID-19 virus all of my gigs have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Both myself and my wife are full-time self-employed jazz musicians who play for a living. I normally perform six nights a week in the Chicago area.
As an effort to work from home, I have opened a Skype teaching studio. If you are interested please visit my Teaching Page or email me - firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, while I am furloughed you can hear me perform in a variety of settings on You Tube
Until now I have kept my YouTube videos ad-free and never monetized them. If you've enjoyed watching and listening to some of my many YouTube videos please consider leaving a tip through Zelle or PayPal using my email - email@example.com
I deeply appreciate your support!
See you when this is over...
